We are a start-up with an ambition to bring a disruption in the analytics industry. For the time being, our industry focus is limited to Energy (including renewable), Utilities and Smart City. Unless you have the urge to do something bigger, you are not fit for this.

We are looking for a machine learning expert/data scientist to support a critical client requirement. Compensation is not a constraint for the right candidate. You will work with founders and will grow much faster than the industry average.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Must have a minimum of 5 years of hands-on experience on machine learning and should be doing designing and coding now
  • Work in a multi-disciplined team where you will take full ownership of turning discoveries and ideas into machine learning models for the client requirement
  • Should have very strong hands-on exposure into Machine Learning, Analytics, Big Data, Java, Python, R, Spark & Hadoop etc.
  • Should be able to develop a model with quickest turn-around time given the requirement
  • Should have the interest to learn new technology, new industry segment and experimentation
  • Should be able to collaborate with the customer in identifying the requirement and developing the solution quickly
  • Must be a good trainer to enable junior resource to come up to speed quickly
  • Should be a good team player

Data Science Specialist – TeamLease Digital

Lead Big Data Engineer – Dono Consulting

One of India’s largest Job Portals is building a solid data science team in Delhi NCR. A small team (5-6 person) to begin, with excellent visibility and support from senior management – this is a fantastic opportunity for a hands-on data engineer with a solid idea of databases, data science, and the connection between the two. The lead data engineer will work closely with the Chief Data Scientist, the data science team and the technology team to bring the ML algorithms to life. He or she will also work with algorithms, based on their interest and abilities.

Strong coding skills in Python, experience with databases, cloud, with SOLR search and working with large data sets is essential.

The team will work like a start-up but with the stability of being a part of a very large, nearly a century old firm. Your day-to-day challenges will include working with a large resume database and creating algorithms to match the right jobs with the right candidate – and work with the data science team to make sure that there is no gap between the tech and models.

This is not a junior level role and applicants are expected to have a sound knowledge of these methods. Neither is this a ‘management’-type role, where team management is the only job – you have to be a hands-on geek with solid database and Python skills.
